Hey fishes! Need some guidance here, currently working at a top 10 firm, I like the IT audit work, I enjoy my team, but I’m feeling like this will be my last busy season here as I want to try some place different + get better pay. My main question is… should I go for a big 4 for 1-2 years to gain that experience in my resume and then jump to industry or should I jump to industry directly? TIA
If your spouse was able to financially support you and there was no actual need for your salary would you still practice or keep working as a lawyer at your present firm?
I'm glad we're having these conversations about race, gender, wages, etc in an reasonable way that doesn't involve flagging posts. As a black female it's hard to ask coworkers directly what (contd)
Do business development roles usually come with a comp structure that ties to new business won?
Do other big 4 have Executive Assistants? KPMG is saying they are doing what other big 4 models are using. Do the partners and MDs do their on admin work?
Welp...I got a 4, they should've just fired me because I am keeping it 💯, I am doing the bare min from now until I leave.. #screwuPwC
Just applied to two roles at Google (through a referral), what is the timeline that is typical to hearing back? Thank you

Need some advice regarding an offer I received. I’m approaching the one year mark in audit (October). I received a $65k accounting job offer in MCOL city with a tech company. The job will be a mix of accounting, budgeting/forecasting, and other ad hoc reporting. Does this sound like a good opportunity given my experience and background (Big 4, reputable university)?
New England Friends: we are a couple in early 30s (No kids yet and a small dog) planning to move to New England from Chicago. Our options are Hartford, CT and Boston, MA. Below are few considerations - 1. SO does not need to travel and will commute to work and I might need to travel when COVID is over. 2. Will prefer a dog friendly neighbourhood. 3.

How do you view yourself as a partner vs MBB partners? Personally, I start seeing differences even among PwC and S& partners. Just want to understand where you see your strengths vs weaknesses
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
What's the salary range to expect with a Data Science master's and 2-3 professional business experience?
Guys I have a huge problem. How do you make decisions? Especially when you're presented with multiple mixed bag of choices? Its what I'm struggling with lately for choosing a company to join. Btw, I have an enormous list of pros n cons YET it's difficult deciding based on short-term and long-term goals. I "need" a challenging role but also enough WLB for a good CTC. How do you decide what to accept and what to let go/sacrifice? It was fine for first 4 yrs of work, now I think shit's getting real
